Lizette and "her team" did a sterling job of wrapping and distributing gifts and toiletries generously donated by our members – thank you to each and every one of you!!

Papa Roy played the role of Father Christmas and landed on the drop zone to many squeals of delight from the kids, then handed each and every child a Christmas present – see the photos in our gallery.

Later that evening we had a rocking year-end party in the Cutaway Pub, with great music supplied by DJ's Brad and Tazz, drinks aplenty from Marius and Jo, and crazy fun was had by all! Some photos are posted on Stefan's Facebook page...
